Le Patio Restaurant
This restaurant calls itself “the tiniest, cutest restaurant in South Florida” and we strongly agree. As the name implies, all the tables—which you can count on one hand—are on the patio at this two-woman run restaurant. The menu features classic French brasserie food done exquisitely well. There isn’t a thing they make that doesn’t make us feel mighty real, but there are a few standouts. The duck mousse pâté is silky and assertively flavored with cognac, port, and peppercorns. The broiled artichoke bottoms stuffed with herbed goat cheese are also unforgettable (even before one of the owners cracks a joke about how we all love stuffed bottoms). Regardless of how full you think you are, you need to finish with the homemade vanilla ice cream, which the owner humble brags about being “somewhat better than Häagen Dazs.” To that we say, “don’t sell yourself so short, chérie.”
